Bev and I went to see the Merry Wives of Windsor at Applegate Park on Saturday. We sat in our lawn chairs and watched the wonderful free performance.

After the play we got to visit with several friends, including some new friends we’ve just made. That conversation got my attention.

The person I was talking to said he and his wife had been praying very specifically for God to use the Playhouse for His kingdom. Which brings me to my point.

I do not generally think in terms of who else might be praying similar prayers as I am. I thought Bev and I were in Merced because WE prayed about it. My friend knocked that idea out of the ballpark.

He’s not the first person that told me they were praying similarly. And I am humbled by that thought. A concert of prayer for Merced going on, and ours was only a small sliver of it.

What a God we serve!
